Raspberry Pi Zero W features WiFi and Bluetooth Connectivity for IoT

Raspberry Pi Zero W

Today, Raspberry Pi celebrates 5 years from the launch of its first version in 2012 launching a new product: the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

This new flavour of the Raspberry Pi is very similar to the current Raspberry Pi Zero launced in November 2015, but with the addition of the Cypress CYW43438 chip, the same chip installed into the Raspberry Pi 3 model B.
